Entrez Searches Seven Texts on the Bookshelf


The growing list of Entrez databases now includes Books, which contains information from seven textbooks related to molecular biology. To search these texts directly in Entrez, select Books from the database menu and enter a text query. For example, try the terms cell cycle control, immunodeficiency, or protein evolution. This will take you to the Bookshelf page, with a report of the number of sections from each book that contain information relevant to your query. Following a link leads to a display of the relevant book sections, including a figure icon for sections that contain figures.

The Books database is also linked to terms in PubMed abstracts. When view-ing an abstract, click on the Books link to see phrases within the abstract that are hyperlinked to book sections.
